Successful completion of the Program Evaluator Candidate Training is the first step in becoming an ABET program evaluator. The Program Evaluator Candidate Training process consists of three separate steps:
- successful completion of this online learning experience
- a Face-to-Face facilitated instruction (held every spring by invitation)
- completion of any additional society-specific training (if required)
The online portion of Program Evaluator Candidate Training typically takes 20-25 hours and requires written work and the completion of three end-of-module quizzes. Once the online training is complete, Program Evaluator Candidates may be invited to attend Face-to-Face Training, which is a 1 1/2 half day experiential workshop that simulates an on-site visit. Subject to the terms of ABET’s Travel Policies and procedures, ABET covers all reasonable travel expenses related to participation in the Face-to-Face Training.
Who Takes Program Evaluator Candidate Training?
Program Evaluator Candidates who have completed the online application and received formal notification of their acceptance into the training program.
Schedule for Program Evaluator Candidate Training
The Program Evaluator Candidate Training process begins in March and ends in June. The online training must be completed before the Face-to-Face Training. The date on which the online material is due depends on the Face-to-Face Training session selected by the Program Evaluator Candidate.
